The number of military Veterans requesting care from the VA is at a historic high.
In the coming weeks, we will be publishing a series of post describing the work we have performed on VA wait times data obtained from the LA Times.
The underlying VA data was obtained from the June 2014 government audit of the VA. In our study we look at:
– The different types of wait times experienced by military veterans
– Socio-economic factors related to VA times such as percentage of vets and poverty rates in the surrounding area
– Detailed look at vets receiving mental health care and the wait times that they experience
